Security for Betsy Devos Could Cost Up To $6.54 Million Over the Next Year

The Education Department will pay the U.S. Marshal’s Service up to $6.54 million to guard Education Secretary Betsy DeVos for the next 12 months, providing “the amount of security around her [that] matches the threats around her,” her spokeswoman said.

DeVos is the only cabinet member to receive protection from the U.S. Marshal’s Service, law enforcement officers who are generally responsible for protecting federal judges, transporting prisoners, apprehending fugitives and protecting witnesses.
